Frosty Wyadup (1X1C2495)
Long exposure creating frosty water at sunset over Wyadup Rocks, Yallingup, South West, Western Australia.
Captured during the same sunset as the image “Wyadup Rocks Sunset” at Wyadup Rocks, south of Canal Rocks in the South West of Western Australia. Providing a simpler view point with the partly submerged boulders providing a leading line from the foreground to the rocky point, then onto the bright sunset on the horizon. The long exposure creating a frosted effect on the sunlit water as it breaks over the boulder ridden shoreline multiple times during the 30 second exposure.
Titled “Frosty Wyadup” to describe the location and intentional frosty water created by the long exposure.
Wyadup Rocks are located just south of Canal Rocks and north of Injidup Beach in the South West of Western Australia. A popular fishing and tourist location that like most of the South West locations is heavily photographed. It is also the home of the famous Injidup Natural Spa, where water from the ocean breaks over the outer rocks and cascades down into a protected rock pool. Popular with both tourists and locals in the summer months.
The rocks themselves are exposed to the full force of the Southern Indian Ocean. Whilst relatively safe on calmer days, they can be extremely dangerous when the swell is running and large waves pound the rocks sending spray high into the air.
